How to punctuate in Russian?

I know how to punctuate in hebrew:
I press caps lock, press shift+numbers in the upper row of the keyboard.
But in Russian this doesn't work.
How can i know if there is, at all, punctuation in russian, since it's scarce,
and is this topic an Office topic or a Windows one.

Russian punctuation

Russian has punctuation that is very similar to European languages, i.e. you use a period at the end of a sentence, a comma to indicate a speech pause, etc. These punctuation characters are followed by a space.

You just enter these characters.

So far this is a general language topic, not even related to Windows. (:-)

You misunderstood

I don't mean a period at the end of the sentence and a coma, no.
There are several signs above some letters

Now I know what you mean.

These characters exist in Unicode as one combined character each. For example, И is U+0418, while Й is U+0419, and ё is U+451.

In Windows you would have to select the Cyrillic keyboard, which, I believe, has these characters. In a cinch you can use the character map application charmap.exe to select and copy these Unicode characters, but for fast typing you need the Russian keyboard.

I found some good advice here through Google.
